    Thank you, Halliburton, for sponsoring and speaking at our May meeting! Below are a few of the highlights, but if you are interested in learning more, you can view the presentation PDF here.

    - The Re-Stimulation timeline of O&G wells defines its evolution in the Williston Basin.
    - The different types of Re-Stimulations bring different tiers of associated challenges, investments, and rewards.
    -  Energy Management Concept = Initial Transfer, Regulating Levels, Managing the Budget, Intervention threshold, and Maximizing Oil Productive Life.
    - Treatment customization is key, as wells are similar but not identical.

    Please note our GMM meetings will reconvene in September; have a safe and fun summer, everyone!

    PS: We will be updating our website and registration processes in the next month, stay tuned!

    The Coyote Clay Target League is making some great progress at their new location! The diligence and effort of their board, coaches and shooters has really required a lot of hard work to keep things moving! We were excited with the opportunity to help find them a utility vehicle that will help keep things running smooth and safe!

    The American Petroleum Institute has filed an application for rehearing on the Department of Energy’s indefinite pause on new and pending liquefied natural gas (LNG) permit approvals for non-Free Trade Agreement countries.

    API argues that the pause is unlawful, violating both the Natural Gas Act and the Administrative Procedure Act, and that it erodes America’s energy advantage by threatening U.S. jobs, national security and environmental progress. 

    “At a time of geopolitical turmoil around the world, the Department of Energy's arbitrary LNG freeze is not only unlawful, it cedes America’s energy advantage to hostile nations while jeopardizing thousands of American jobs,” API Vice President of Natural Gas Markets Rob Jennings said. “U.S. LNG is a cornerstone of global energy security, and its benefits – which include bolstering the American economy, reducing global emissions and strengthening our national security – are well-established. There is bipartisan recognition that this move is political, and we will continue to take any steps necessary to resume American leadership on LNG.”

    In the filing, API argues that DOE’s pause contradicts the clear mandate of the Natural Gas Act for DOE to issue LNG export permits to non-FTA countries absent a finding that it is not in the public interest. API also criticized the LNG export pause as “arbitrary and capricious,” highlighting DOE’s failure to provide a justification for changing its longstanding position. DOE implemented the pause without prior notice or the ability to comment as required by the Administrative Procedure Act. 

    In the U.S., the natural gas and oil industry supports 10.8 million jobs and contributes $1.8 trillion to the U.S. economy. LNG exports are a critical part of the natural gas value chain, supporting jobs from production facilities in Pennsylvania and New Mexico to pipeline operations Ohio and West Virginia to export and liquefaction facilities in Texas and Louisiana.

    Ron Ness, President of the North Dakota Petroleum Council, shares his daughter's experience in the hope of saving other lives. 

    Earlier this month, as Ron's daughter was headed back to Montana from Bismarck, she hit a deer east of Billings. The airbags deployed, and she lost sight, drove off the road, and hit a big tree. Somehow, she wasn’t severely hurt but was stuck inside her car as the door and windows would not open. A man from another car tried to break her windows but couldn’t break them. She remembered that her mother had put a glass breaker/seat belt cutter (pictured below) in her console.
    She found the glass breaker/seat belt cutter, broke the passenger window, and jumped out of the car. Minutes later, her car went up in flames. After a night of observation in the hospital, she is ok and home.

    The Ness Family thanks everyone who helped her.

    We encourage you to make sure all your vehicles have a safety device like this, readily accessible, and the basic knowledge of how to use it.

    Thank you, City of Williston, for sponsoring last night's meeting and Kathy Neset, Neset Consulting, for presenting "The State of the Industry" on behalf of Ron Ness from the NDPC. The evening offered engaging conversations and insight into how sustainable the Bakken industry has become and how far it has yet to grow.

    Ron Ness, NDPC president, was not able to join us but wanted to share a safety moment. His daughter had a collision with a deer while traveling, which trapped her in her vehicle, and emergency services were not on site yet to help. However, she used a Kubaton that Ron and his wife had previously stored in the vehicle to break a window and escape. Moments later, the vehicle ignited and exploded. The Williston Basin API chapter is grateful she is safe and for the shareable safety moment.

    Reminder - Registration for the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference, May 14-16, 2024, in Bismarck, ND, is open! Click here for more information.
